The narwhal has captured people’s imaginations for hundreds of years. Found in the far north, they are a whale species very much connected to the Arctic ice. They also have that fantastic legendary eight-foot long tusk. What is the function of this amazingly modified tooth? Tune in and find out when Inquiry talks with writer and natural historian TODD McLEISH who traveled to where the narwhals live in order to write his new book NARWHALS: ARCTIC WHALES IN A MELTING WORLD.

The first four notes of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony are instantly recognizable to music listeners around the world. Since the symphony’s premiere in 1808, people of many cultures have found special meaning in those four notes. Some have heard fate knocking on a door, while others have heard the spirit of revolution or the essence of the Romantic sublime. The Chinese Communist government initially banned it then embraced it. Some listeners even heard the call of a common European sparrow.

Our guest tonight on Inquiry is JOHN A. LONG, Strategic Professor in Paleontology at Flinders University in Adelaide. Professor Long has made one of the most amazing and unexpected discoveries in paleontology: evidence of internal fertilization in prehistoric fish that lived 380 million years ago. This means these ancient creatures were not externally fertilizing eggs like many fish today do, but instead were having sex.

Traveling around the world was initially one of the most dangerous enterprises a person could try. It was a “war of attrition against the vastness of the globe”. These early circumnavigators had little idea of where they were going, suffered from disease and fear and encountered hostile native peoples. Yet by the 1700s, travel around the world had become almost commonplace and certainly less dangerous. It was a dramatic evolution in how people thought about the world. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with JOYCE E.
